I’m just going to say it: A lot of fall home decor is overdone and lowkey boring. That’s not to say that a giant ceramic jar that reads “Halloween Candy” or a kitchen towel with some kind of turkey pun aren’t fun and great (because they are). But if you’re itching for some new fall home decor ideas to embrace, we’ve gotchu.
Believe it or not, there are many decorative home details that scream fall but in a timeless, whisper-scream kind of way. Got it? Luckily, all your favorite decor retailers, from West Elm to Nordstrom and Society6, are on the same autumn aesthetic page.
Basically, you’re adding a shot of espresso to your pumpkin spice latte! It’s still the same, but with a little extra sparkle. So instead of filling a vase with bright plastic orange oak leaves, set out an oil diffuser filled with dry autumn florals. Obviously, you still need pumpkins, but swap that set of simple jack-o’-lanterns with a gorgeous glass pumpkin.
